What with his two Grammy wins, forgiving Chris Brown and writing a novel, Frank Ocean is a busy man. But despite his full schedule, the Channel Orange artist is already working on the follow-up to 2012's Best Urban Contemporary Album. 

Ocean told BBC he's "10, 11 songs" into his next LP, which he describes as "another cohesive thing, bordering on a concept record again.” While he didn't reveal much else—the R&B singer chooses his words judiciously, often tweeting one word a week—Ocean said he's already worked with Pharrell on some of these tracks and hopes to get together with Danger Mouse soon.

Ocean also dropped this important bombshell: Tyler, the Creator turned him onto psych-rockers Tame Impala: "It's wicked. They're great." So that's cool, cuz we like 'em, too.

June 23: Jack White's Really Rooting for the Home Team

June 23: Jack White's Really Rooting for the Home Team

Were the Cubs down or something? Jack White was spotted at last night's baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres looking absolutely miserable. The Cubbies pulled out a 6-0 win over San Diego last night so the White Stripe ideally should have been enjoying himself in spite of the team's current 41-57 record.
